Jacobus Adriaan Myburgh (Riaan)

I played for my school Cricket team and started cricket umpiring at the age of 16 years and umpired for the SA National under 19 Colts team in 1997. I am a qualified cricket umpire and cricket coach and I have players that play provincial Cricket. I eat and sleep cricket and want to assist players to buy the correct cricket bat for them.

Need any help choosing a bat?
